New Leanne Ellis Designs (1)

OH I'm so excited lots happening at the House of Sugar!!!!! As part of the Design Team, we have been lucky enough to have a play with some of the new Leanne Ellis Designs.

They are so gorgeous.
Not really my usual style (I'm more cutesy - not me the images I work with), but these are lovely!!

Here is what I have come up with for my first design.....................

This is a digital image at the moment but hopefully the rubber will be available to buy soon.
I printed her off, along with the other 4 arty designs and 2 Annie designs onto one sheet of Whisper White Cardstock.
Then I coloured her using my Promarkers. I am getting so much better at colouring I have searched the Internet looking for different tutorials on various colouring techniques, so have been learning a lot.
Particularly the dress I'm so pleased with the result. I coloured a darker shade of pink at the top where you would expect shade, then using a lighter shade I coloured using a circular motion over the darker shade but not to the bottom, then finally using the same circular motion I used a blender pen. (I'm thinking about doing a new tutorial, depending on time!!!)
Here are some homemade blooms, which I have adorned with some card candy and another brad made using my i-top (I love it!!!)
I wrapped some taffeta ribbon, from SU, around and tied a bow which I topped off with some more card candy.
I think this is very soft and subtle, not me at all, but I quite like the result.
Hope you like too!!
